2019 Historic Hotels of America Awards of Excellence

Distinctive & Notable









Opened in 1910, The Hermitage Hotel was Nashville’s first million-dollar hotel. Billed as “fire proof, noise proof, and dust proof,” the hotel served as the headquarters for the suffragette movement in 1920, when Tennessee cast the deciding ballot giving women the right to vote. Reopened after a $19 million renovation in 2003, this National Historic Landmark showcases restored architectural details, classically traditional décor, and is outfitted with 21st-century amenities. The hotel's grand foyer ushers guests into one of the most stunningly beautiful lobbies in America, with its gorgeous stained-glass ceiling. Over the years, famous visitors have included U.S. presidents as well as cowboy star Gene Autry and his horse Champion.

The Hermitage Hotel was named the “Best City Center Historic Hotel” by Historic Hotels of America at the 2019 Awards of Excellence
